Caring Through Connection: How Institutions Can Build Meaningful Relationships with Students
Building meaningful connections with students is crucial for their success. However, establishing and nurturing these relationships has become increasingly challenging for institutions.
Recently uncovered by the higher ed experts at Fierce Education, only 12% of postsecondary students feel a total sense of belonging at their institution. This highlights the urgent need for institutions to prioritize the student connection. With engagement being a strong factor in student success, higher education institutions must find innovative solutions that help them connect with their students on a deeper level.
The Challenges of Connecting with Students:
Lack of Personalized Engagement
Many institutions struggle to provide personalized experiences that resonate with each student's unique needs and aspirations. The one-size-fits-all approach often leads to disengagement and a lack of connection.
With students immersed in a digital world, traditional communication methods no longer suffice. Institutions find it challenging to reach students through channels that resonate with them and facilitate meaningful interactions.
Limited Resources and Capacity
Institutions often face resource constraints, making it difficult to allocate the necessary time and personnel for individual student interactions. This limitation hampers the ability to provide the personalized support students deserve and require.
